We mentioned in our weekly review of open positions the frustration of having a position go against us from the very beginning, and so it continued with our short position in crude this week, finally giving us an exit signal tonight after an impressive 3-day thrust to 5-week highs. We’ve covered our position at the open of the overnight session for a loss of $4,400 per contract.
Short Crude Oil ($CL_F) 3/8 -$4,400.00 per contract
